Designing a Campus for African-American Females

Designing a Campus for African-American Females ruth williams hooker barbara mullins nelson and pamela s hinds a new model for explaining obesity in african american women
Бренд:

The campus of the National Training School for Women and Girls in Lincoln Heights, Washington, D.C., was the physical manifestation of a new ideology in technical and higher education for African American women. The National Training School was founded by Nannie Helen Burroughs in conjunction with the Baptist Women's Convention. Burroughs was also a member of the National Association of Colored Women (NACW) and headed a Commission studying housing for African Americans in D.C. at the request of President Hoover. The National Training School opened in 1909 and operated until 1964. It is significant for being the first school for African American females to open outside of the Deep South, for being single-sex, relying on African American benefactors for most of its funding, and extending its curriculum beyond technical training to include the Liberal Arts and a Department of Negro History. This monograph examines how the campus evolved throughout the school’s lifetime (using Baist and Sanborn maps and pictures in the Library of Congress) and relates changes in the campus plan to the evolution of women’s education in general and education for African Americans specifically.

New Urban International Migration: African American Women Move Abroad

New Urban International Migration: African American Women Move Abroad ruth williams hooker barbara mullins nelson and pamela s hinds a new model for explaining obesity in african american women
Бренд:

Globalization, an increase in international mobility through international migration, is not limited to race, nationality or ethnicity. The world is an increasingly expanding canvas even as it continues to shrink due to people capitalizing on more technology, which brings us closer through the internet. Today, more people have the ability to travel and they are taking the opportunity to explore alternative career opportunities. This book explored the motivating factors for African American female expatriates adjusting to their host countries. The participants evaluated their adaptation, identity, experience, common bonds, and perceptions. Through this exploration, there was an apparent intercultural shift among the participants in terms of value and perception. Based on the research there is a definite need for more research on self-initiated expats who are moving abroad in the field of teaching, especially in ESL, and a need to explore theoretical frameworks around cultural adaptation and the adjustment of African American expatriates.

Continuing the work from her earlier book, The Secret Messages in African American Theater: Hidden Meanings Embedded in Public Discourse (Edwin Mellen, 2006) this text, Through Smiles and Tears: the History of African American Theater contextualizes West, East and South African performance traditions of old that contributed to the formation of African American performance traditions. From the development of musical instruments, to the creation of song styles and cadence, to the playful comic parody that would serve as modest entertainment for hundreds of thousands of Negroes in the plantation quarters of the south, this text seeks to shed light on the rich history and tradition of African American Theater. Providing a unique analysis into the political economy of African American performance traditions, Williams- Witherspoon's book offers a unique addition to the American Theater canon. This text offers a more in-depth history of African American Theater, its African retentions and its contributions to American Theater and popular culture.

The ability to lead comes in all shapes, forms and all walks of life. There are many reasons why a leader emerges and many circumstances that drive them to act. Leadership is an action and a leader emerges because of their actions. The fact that the adult American Negro women emerges a formidable character is often met with amazement, distaste and even belligerence. It is seldom accepted as an inevitable outcome of the struggle won by survivors, and deserves respect if not enthusiastic acceptance. —Maya Angelou (1969)

Бренд:

The book concentrates on plays which can be considered hallmarks in the African-American theatre. It focuses on four dramas written by four African-American women as representatives of African-American woman's theatre: Adreinne Kennedy's Funnyhouse of a Negro (1964), Ntozake Shange's For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf (1974), Aishah Rahman's Unfinished Woman Cry in No Man's Land, While a Bird Dies in a Gilded Cage (1977), and Alexis De Veaux's The Tapestry (1975). Their journey progresses from the recognition of pain to its verbalization and subsequently to self –affirmation. They discuss such controversial issues as abortion, sexuality, female empowerment, while challenging obstacles like racism, sexism and gender stereotypes. The four dramatists tackled their inner sufferings from different angles. Whereas Kennedy's play, Funnyhouse of the Negro, represents death as its final image, Shange's For Colored Girls ends with the heroines' dance to celebrate their real identities in life. Rahman, on the other hand, presents both birth and death at the end of the play. De Veaux adds a new aspect to her play; that is hope.

Economic development must be a precursor to community development in an impoverished inner city neighborhood in order to reverse the trend of poverty and oppression in that same neighborhood. Can the economic development model of the Mondragon Cooperative in Mondragon, Spain be utilized as a primary model for economic development, the precursor to community development in the Over-The-Rhine neighborhood in Cincinnati, Ohio? Having grown up in two inner city communities between 1960 & 1978, in two mid-west cities, one located in Ohio and the other Michigan, I have experienced the racial dynamics of ghetto making that occurred in most of the main Midwest cities during the great migration that occurred for African Americans who left the south to live in the north where manufacturing opportunities were located between the 1920’s to the 1970’s.

AFRICAN PROVERBS ABOUT WOMEN

AFRICAN PROVERBS ABOUT WOMEN ruth williams hooker barbara mullins nelson and pamela s hinds a new model for explaining obesity in african american women
Бренд:

This book sets on the premise that there is a need for a new cultural hermeneutics that will move towards the deconstruction of the wrong attitudes against African women; that are experienced through some (African) proverbs. Certainly, a change of attitude is necessary in order to redeem Africa from the typecasts that do harm to the society. It is ironical that ''society'' includes the African church. Change of attitude will help in upholding, creating positive proverbs and in dismantling the old ones, which are designed to distort a woman''s image. It is recommended that African women scholars and theologians, together with "concerned" men should publish books that will put to public domain the "newly" reconstituted and/or redesigned proverbs and reach out to those who cannot read or write through seminars and in their respective places. In addition, it is urged that we should, make it a habit to severally quote the "new" proverbs in our speeches and in our ongoing publications - in our endeavour to usher in a new community of men and women where the lion and the goat will sit together at a Kamukunji (dialogue table) of interaction and genuine friendliness.

Staff Perceptions of African-American Male Principals

Staff Perceptions of African-American Male Principals ruth williams hooker barbara mullins nelson and pamela s hinds a new model for explaining obesity in african american women
Бренд:

This quantitative survey research examined staff perceptions of African-American male principals in a K-12 urban public school district. Many cultural scholars believe that race matters in staff perceptions of their principal (Banks, 1991; Ladson-Billings &Tate, 1995; Lomotey, 1989). Frequently, African-American principals who lead a diverse group of staff members’ in a large, K-12 urban public school district find their authority challenged and are view as “insignificant” leaders (Sizemore, 1986). Chemers’s model (1995) on integrative leadership outlines three leadership categories (image, relational dimensions, and leadership) that are necessary for a person to lead an ethnically diverse workforce. The theoretical framework for this research study is a conceptual model of the Leader-Member Exchange Theory (LMX) by (Graen & Uhl-Bien, 1995). This theory explains interactions and relationships between the leaders and followers. The purpose of this study was to investigate staff members’ perceptions of their African-Americans male principals in the areas of image, staff relationships, and leadership characteristics.
